Hey Peter!
Kick-ass first post! Good stuff. Kelly Starrett of CF San Francisco is the re-hab guru and loves the shut-down isometrics.

Hi Robb,

sorry for my late reply... You should try to get a hold of Phil Lancaster, who is arguably the top coach with respect to flexibility training. Years ago there used to be mailinglist for contortionist where he gave extraordinary detailed advice. I would be interested to read what he has to write on the topic today.

One thing I remember, I used to have a printout but I don't find it anymore, is that he adviced doing calisthenics between stretching sets. Say you are working on your side split: do your 30sec or how long it takes stretch, then do 15-20 JumpingJacks or similar, and repeat the stretch etc. Alternate these till you are ready with your session. The reason he gave, if memory serves me, was that you would not get a s sore as you would without those jumpingjacks. So you could savely continue early and make in consequence larger progress in a shorter time frame, and of course it keeps you warm between sets which is paramount for stretching.

Regards,

Peter

Peter-

That is REALLY interesting. Years ago I stretched between all PL'ing movements...which I was later told was limiting my top end strength. I had an easy front and side split AND pretty good PL numbers. Hmmmm....time efficients if nothing else. I might give something like this a whirl again and i will do some searching on the chap you mentioned.

You could try the homepage of Tige Young for some contact info. Phil Lancaster used to post in his forum, but this is no longer an open forum... BTW I have the contact info of the guys who developed pre-exhaust stretching. If you interested I will shoot you a PM...

Regards,

Peter
